If you ever call me a fool again I shall kill you..and it shall be bloodless..
Now how much more formal can you get when threatening someone's life short of putting it on an engraved invitation? LOL

I like David Farrar as Sexton Blake much better than George Curzon, who played the part in earlier times.
I have this title and "Meet Sexton Blake" on VHS and watch them once in a while. Lots of background scenery of London.
Danny Green's most famous part was in "The Ladykillers" with Alec Guiness.

David Farrar played a bit part in "The Hooded Terror", another Sexton Blake showing here. He went on to star for Powell & Pressburger.

3 Days ago I didn´t know anything about this man, now I have watched 2 movies here at IA (the other one is "Sexton Blake and the Hooded Terror), both I do recommend.

This one has a more complicated plot than the other because there are many different villains working on their own purpose. Maybe in the end not every loose end of the script gets tied together but it is a fast paced action story which keeps your interest and the acting is adequate.

You can see Ferdi Mayne (I absolutely adore him in "The Fearless Vampire Killers" by Polanski) in a small part as minor villain trying to keep his brainless partner under control. He does a good job.

Look out for Carl. He is played by Danny Green. Not important to mention him for his work in this film. I do not even remember if he has any lines to say. His job is beating up people, not talking. But later he will be a wonderful Karim, the leader of a mutiny against Sinbad the sailor in "Sinbads 7th Voyage" from 1958.
